This AILA Research Network is intended to provide a forum which existing national and language-based associations (see 'Links' tab above) can take advantage of to communicate with one another and build research collaborations, and which can provide them with additional publicity, thus helping to strengthen them. At the same time, a major function of the Network is to serve individual researchers interested in the history of language learning and teaching for whom no dedicated national or language-based association currently exists.
